Just a reminder that there is a new Pedestrian Crossover that has been installed on our school street. 

 

Pedestrian Crossovers are identified by specific signs and pavement markings, and vehicles (including cyclists) must yield to pedestrians at these locations.  Additional information such as what they are, how they work, and where they are located can be found on http://ottawa.ca/en/residents/transportation-and-parking/road-safety/pedestrian-crossovers

Drivers/Cyclists will be fined $150 to $500 with 3 demerit points for offences at Pedestrian Crossovers.  Enforcement of offences at Pedestrian Crossovers will begin as soon as they are unveiled.  Also, please NO PARKING on the crossovers.

The installation of the new Pedestrian Crossovers requires a significant change in travel behaviour for all road users to ensure a safe road environment for pedestrians at these crossings so please learn about the crossovers.
